Hey everyone, I was just sitting here, just minding my own business, when BAM! Hit me hard from the back! Schoom! Fire was everywhere! Foom! Foom![/scmoyoho reference] when I got this IDE/Theory in my head, and I figured I would posit it here to see what you guys think, but also to provide any of you a thread where you can post your own theories on your religion of choice.
Mine, of course, is about Christianity, more specifically the very beginnings of the Bible. MORE specifically sin, because one thing that I find a lot of "debatey" people asking is whether or not sin is supposed to be a supernatural trait or a physical one.
But what if it's both?
What if, way back when God was first making humans, he found that he could make an... on/off switch for sin (and the obvious associate, death) in our DNA, and the catalyst for turning that switch was in the fruit that he told Adam and Eve not to eat?
That way, not only is sin an inheritable trait (because it's in our DNA, with the switch "on") but also a supernatural one because the only cure for it is divine intervention (or not having imperfect parents like Jesus) since even scientists that have been studying our genes for a few decades only know a small portion of what it all does.
Now keep in mind that this thread is not for open debates on what religion is right or wrong, it is only for IDE/theories about them that would more than likely get you an odd look from your local religious instructor. Atheists are fine, as long as you're not douchebags about it.
